We know most of the Central/South Americans are vaccinated against measles. Legal immigrants from the Philippines, many countries in Europe and Israel have large numbers of unvaccinated. WRT poor blacks, Mississippi has the highest rate of measles vaccination in the country, and NO measles. Of course, it easier to blame brown and black people.

Take a look at this map, and you will see that many US immigrants come from countries with high measles rate. When they visit friends and family in their home country, then they take diseases with them back to the US.

What do you think is more likely, a filipino immigrant going back to philippines or an anti-vaxxer going to philippines?

What I don't get about the extremely religious anti-vaxxers is that their holy books might have passages about using medicines or herbs. The passages on taking care of your body probably also refers to getting medicated or treated when you are sick.

If they are from South America, Caribbean islands, or Cuba then likely they were vaccinated as children. Vaccination programs are not optional in most countries like they are here, therefore their Vaccination rates are actually higher than those in the USA.

If they are coming as children and moved into HHS care, they will be vaccinated at that time if not done so already.
Refugees entering the country also receive vaccines and complete physicals within 90 days of arrival.

I know this wont sway irrational fears but I thought I would give it a shot.

BTW currently the Philippines is the hot spot for failed vaccination by public health programs for measles and contributed to the spread of Measles through international travel. And we have loads of people that travel into the USA from the Philippines.

So on one hand, immigrants are housed in detention camps with hygiene and basic services so poor, the immigrants have to drink water from toilets (https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...k-toilet-water).

On the other hand, according to you, they "receive vaccines and complete physicals within 90 days of arrival."

Both can't be true.

Illegal immigrants coming across the southern border are coming from 25 different third world countries. Many from Africa.
Who knows all the rare diseases they could be bringing.

Democrats will not address this because it’s RACIST!!!

Look at the dark pink countries in Western Europe. Hardly 3rd World Countries. How many immigrants are we getting from Italy, France, and Germany? Far more likely foreign tourists to this country, or Americans visiting those countries.

I did read there was a major outbreak of the flu at one detention center in Texas. Certainly cannot claim migrants or immigrants are bringing the flu to the US because they aren't getting their vaccinations. lol

Some of the countries that these immigrants are leaving have better vaccination rates than the United States.

It's not being blamed on American citizens though. It's being blamed on illegal immigrants. How do you explain the fact presented here, that some of these immigrants come from countries with better vaccination rates than the USA? Can you really still keep blaming it on immigration?
